Yes, It's Today

Alright, okay, settle down now. Yes, today is the day, 43 years ago, that God decided to bless me and place me into the greatest family, born to Joe and Kay, and as oldest of four daughters.

It's a difficult birthday, being the first one since my daddy passed away. He always called me and convinced me that I wasn't really the age I was, because that would mean he was getting old. I miss him so much.

I want to thank ALL of you for the wonderful well wishes and gifts. And mainly for your friendship.

I am off to spend the day with poor Rick who has said we would go shopping. He has no idea what he is in for.

Thank you again. I love y'all!!!!!!

Happy Birthday Jill!

Amy wrote such a beautiful post about you - which I know you have read already.

And, I totally understand the sadness you feel about your dad. Maybe your dad and my dad (who passed in January) are up there having a scotch and laughing about their daughters' blogs (which my dad doesn't even know I write)

amelia bedelia said...

Have you EVER had so many birtday wishes sister!!!! Wow, you are so popular!! I'm sure you bought every store out today. Happy Birthday again! love you!

Farrago said...

My dad passed away in May, but I wasn't filled with the urge to shop, but rather to try to figure out a way to bring him back.

I haven't succeeded, yet.

Linda S said...

Jennifer said...

Scary Mommy said...

Lisa L said...

Happy birthday! Hope it was a greagt one and that you got lots of lovely presents!

Jyl @ MommyGossip said...

Glad you had a great day! While I could never be a nurse, gotta tell you how thankful I am for them.

I'd write out the whole long saga in an e-mail, but I don't see one available on your site. I did write a post about my health here:

http://mommygossip.blogspot.com/2008/08/to-be-sick-or-to-be-caregiver.html

This was before I started mommy blogging. The anniversary surgery was for the fractured skull and hematoma. The jaw surgery was only three months prior. It was a rough year that one. Enjoy! (I can only say that because you are a nurse.)

BTW: I am soooo sad I forgot about the anniversary, because I really wanted to post the pic of my post-surgery with a half bald head, healing from 42 staples that had recently been removed. I love that pic!!!
